    Parasites of the three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus (L.), and the nine-spined stickleback, Pungitius pungitius (L.), from brackish and freshwater habitats in Poland are listed. The following list was compiled from published records and own long-term studies. Parasites are listed alphabetically in meaningful groups of parasites with notes about their location on the host and distribution in Poland with references. A total of 51 species (taxa) of parasites were recorded on G. aculeatus (3 Apicomplexa, 1 Microsporidia, 3 Peritrichia, 1 Myxozoa, 7 Digenea, 2 Monogenea, 10 Cestoda, 10 Nematoda, 7 Acanthocephala, 3 Copepoda, 1 Branchiura, 2 Hirudinea, 1 Bivalvia) and 16 parasites on P. pungitius (1 Apicomplexa, 1 Microsporidia, 2 Peritrichia, 4 Digenea, 1 Monogenea, 2 Cestoda, 2 Nematoda, 1 Copepoda, 1 Branchiura, 1 Bivalvia).
